Magical, Fantastic, and Wilde!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde (Paperback)
This novel is a turbulant explanation of the ruined life of a man who has escaped any physical ramifications of sin. Dorian Gray's body and face go untouched by the nightmarish double-life he leads, while his portrait is changed by every wrong. The main question I had after reading it was whether someone would feel emotionally the effects of sin if he didn't feel them physically. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is young or remembers being so, for this work explores the wonders and miseries of youth.

In response to your comment on the emotional effects of Dorian's sins, it was his soul that was offered to look beautiful, and without a soul one could argue one feels no emotion, if not certainly no conscience.
